Watching the MSX videos and the forks seems to fully collapse but my US bike at what feels like full compress seems to still have another 2.5 inches of chrome showing.. I've yet to feel the "slap" of them bottoming out

In this picture you can clearly see there is more chrome than say in the MSX Thai promo vid of it going down the stairs it's completely collapsing them.. So did honda plan ahead for the fat arse of America when building the US spec ones?

Having ridden both, yes, it does seem that Honda did something different... not sure what tho. The MSX forks are much easier to bottom. I've got a lot of mileage on them however, so it could be a new fork versus old fork thing? Maybe its placebo effect? lol! I dunno.
